Wartech H-4731 Biohazard 13" Overall Zombie Black Blade with Neon Green Handle, A Review

The Wartech H-4731 Biohazard Zombie is a 13" hunting knife made out of 440 stainless steel and plastic contoured handle. It is a full tang knife with the knife surface blacked out while the plastic contoured handle is painted with luminous green. The package also includes a nylon sheath.

Bought it through Amazon for a price of USD10.88 (MYR xx) plus an additional courier and import charges of USD30.74 (MYR xx). I opted using DHL despite it being 3 times more expensive than the knife as I don't want the hassle of dealing with customs etc. Within 4 days of making the order, I got it on my desk without any problems.

For the price I paid, there is not much negative that I can find with the knife apart from two. The first is the material used for the handle. It appears from touch and eyeballing it that the handle is made out of simple plastic. Although it has be ergonomically designed, it will be very slippery when wet. The second is the nylon sheath. The serrated edge of the knife catches on the inside of the sheath and it get stuck sometimes. I suspect the sheath is a bit too tight for the knife.

The knife is sharp straight from the box. The black paint is not expected to cling to the metal surface strongly hence the blade would look rather scratchy once used. The blade is nice and straight with a pointed tip.

Overall I am satisfied.

Wartech S-3023 Milspec Tactical - Huge, A Review

The Wartech S-3023 Milspec Tactical is a 13" hunting knife which features a 440 stainless steel blade with a black ABS handle. It has a contoured handle for easy handling. This knife also includes a nylon sheath to keep this knife safe and secure while not in use as well as a sharpening stone.

This knife is halfway between a machete and a typical hunting knife. Very hefty and a thick knife (5 mm). The handle grips well. 

The knife has a titanium coating that gives that grayish colour. 

The sheath provided is well designed. It has a full belt loop and extra leg ties so keep it firmly on the side of your leg. The sheath also comes with a bundled para cord. A small pocket is also provided which also includes a "diamond" sharpener.

Paid USD35.92 for it plus an additional USD37.10 for courier and import fees via Amazon. I decided to use the Amazon Global Priority option (via DHL) as this is my second attempt at buying this particular knife. The first attempt ended when it was stopped at US Customs (I eventually got a refund from Amazon). This time around it got through.

Rolson Folding Trimming Knife - A very compact box-cutter, A Review

I found this interesting box-cutter at ACE Hardware Store in Mid Valley. Cost me RM28.09. Made by Rolson, it is a box-cutter that is made into a folding knife. When folded it is approximately 10.5 cm long. Fully extended it is 16.5 cm long with a blade length of 3 cm.

Made out of plastic, it comes with a belt clip. The opening tab on the blade holder also doubles up as the quick blade change release. At the center of the handle you can just make out the locking mechanism release button. Apart from the belt clip, there is ring at the hilt to tie a lanyard if required.

The blade is a standard Two-Notch-Blade. Rolson also provide a clear plastic cover for the blade as added safety.

As a box-cutter, I find this design very refreshing. Unlike standard heavy-duty box-cutters which are relatively longer, this design is very compact. I like it very much.
